A Brief History of BMW
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a step. The journey of BMW began When Karl Friedrich Rapp took the bold step and signed a partnership agreement with Fran-Josef Poop and Camillo Castiglioni in the year 1917 to be able to survive the financial downturn his company Rap-Motorenwerke was going through back then. Before then Rapp had a well to do company that manufactured aircraft engines during World War1 but unfortunately, his engines suffered a great misfortune which made his competitors overtook his position. That was a major setback that kept his company away until he got a new contract to manufacture 600 aircraft engines for the Prussian army and this made him sign that partnership deal.
